Dear Legal Fraternity,
Lawlex invites you to write Case Summaries of various landmark judgments. The aim is to help the law student fraternity get acquainted with a number of cases and make a decision on what to study in detail and what can be studied summarily. We, by no means, are diminishing the importance of studying the original judgments, which no doubt are the best means to study a case properly. However, want the students’ to effectively manage and utilize their time by making a considerate decision.
Just as a meager incentive, we have kept a cash prize of Rs 2000/- for the best Case Summary. To be eligible for the cash reward, you need to submit at least three Case Summaries latest by

Best entries will receive a certificate of appreciation.
